    It looks like the body of the square is more predominately green, though, so maybe the puff would have worked. Rome, can you post a pic of the unfolded square?

    There is nothing wrong with it at all except that it may be a bit matchy. In fact it looks pretty good folded.

    NB: When I have had puffs or any PS for that matter that will not stay put, I pin the puff from behind in the pocket exactly as i want it, and it never moves a millimeter and nobody is any the wiser. :satisfied:

    That is exactly what is wrong with it.

    I suspect Gus still won't like it, but it looks much better to me.

    EDIT: I generally subscribe to the "complement, don't match" school of pocket squaring, but I don't always dislike the color coordination as long as the pattern is sufficiently different and other colors get involved.
